Vanessa Bryant continues to shows us what true resilience looks like. On Tuesday, the widow of Kobe Bryant took to her Instagram account to post a picture with Ciara and Russel Wilson’s baby, Win Wilson.

In the adorable picture, Bryant affectionately rests her head against the 2-month-old’s head. Win also looks comfortable, his face snuggled against Bryant’s shoulder.

Bryant captioned the post: “Sweet Baby. Win” along with a heart emoji. She tagged her friend Ciara as well as Ciara’s husband, Russel Wilson.

Ciara responded with a lovely note of her own, saying, “The sweetest. We love you Auntie V.” Vanessa Bryant and Ciara have recently let the public into their friendship, sharing candid pictures of them hanging out together, their children in tow.

In August, around Kobe’s birthday, Vanessa posted a picture to her Instagram account of her and her daughters, three-year-old and one-year-old Bianka and Capri. In the photo, all of them are huddled close, smiling smiling with Ciara. Bryant was similarly affectionate in her praise for Ciara then, writing: “It takes a village. Thank you to all my loving family, amazing friends and wonderful fans for your love and support. One day at a time.”

Shortly after, Ciara posted the same photo to her own Instagram account where she wrote a touching tribute to her good friend, whom she calls “Mamba Queen”.

“Seeing you and the girls smile makes my heart smile,” she gushed. “You’re the toughest mama I know. Seeing you put one foot forward each day is admirable. It ain’t easy, but if I know one thing, Mamba Queen’s capable of it all. Love you.”

The recent much-needed facetime with loved ones is probably especially important right now for Bryant, who is embroiled in some unpleasant personal turmoil behind the scenes.

Not only has her mother been making the media rounds, accusing Vanessa of kicking her out of her home, but she recently sued the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for sharing unauthorized photos of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe and Gianna Bryant in January.

The latter case inspired a recently-passed California law that Governor Gavin Newsome just signed into action that “makes it a crime for first responders to take unauthorized photos of deceased people at the scene of an accident or crime.”

We’re glad to see that Vanessa Bryant has a strong support system around her. If anyone needs it, it is her.
